United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on November 4, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Trevor Red Bird, age 31, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Red Bird was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 11, 2019.  He pled guilty on August 27, 2019.

Red Bird was convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact in U.S. District Court in May 2008.  As a result of this conviction, Red Bird is required to register as a sex offender.  In April 2019, Red Bird was on federal supervised release and was properly registered and residing in Rapid City.  On April 7, 2019, Red Bird moved from his registered address but did not update his registration.  An arrest warrant was subsequently issued and on June 26, 2019, Red Bird was arrested at a residence in St. Francis, South Dakota.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.

Red Bird was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
